Yep...Monday comes running in like a boot to the head!

Seriously, when I saw this play, I laughed my ass off...This play, and well the play that followed pretty much some up the Cleveland Browns since 1999...

Now lets be honest...Brown could have easily cut left, and blown past Lanning, just as he did to ever other member or the Punt coverage team...But shit, what would make this highlight sweeter? Hurdling the damn punter...Dude had to go for it...But when he realized he wasn't going to clear Lanning, or Lanning wasn't getting out of the way...Fuck, time to move that punter...BOOT TO THE HEAD!  Not a Steelers fan...Not Browns fan...But damn I loved this play!

So, they moved it back because the refs felt the boot to the head was "unnecessary roughness"...Okay, give it to Bell now that we see the Browns can't quite tackle! It's so damn Cleveland, us Clevelanders can't be mad...You just gotta laugh!

And I don't care fellow Clevelanders...So what the Browns came back in the second half, and tied it up...Way to go! Then they fell for a fake punt deep in the Steelers end...Totally got burned...Right then they lost the momentum...And eventually they gave up a big drive, followed by an easy game winning field goal wit h no time left...Sorry, no moral victory...They did what they do best...They lost!

Up next for the Browns...A pissed off New Orleans Saints team that got beat by the Falcons...

Hey, anyone see what happened in College Football this past weekend? Texas got abused, at home, by BYU...I forget the score, but it was BYU: a lot, and Texas: hey when is Texas showing up?

Ohio State lost in prime-time , at home, to unranked Virginia Tech...Urban Meyer admitted afterwards that the Hokies exposed their weaknesses...Like, apparently they stopped recruiting QB's when Braxton Miller signed there, and their young offensive line needs a fuck-ton of practice...

Oregon was down to Michigan State...But then they flipped the NIKE switch, and blew the Spartans out of the water in the second half...

But the best game, in my opinion, was the final matchup (for the time being) between Notre Dame and Michigan...If there is one thing I have in common with Ohio State fans, it's a pure hatred for Michigan...Well, folks...The Irish ended this rivalry in fucking style...The beat the shit out of Michigan 31-0....31-0!

 

Awesome! There's nothing else to say....

 

 

No, seriously, I've got nothing else to say...

 

Oh, did I forget your weekly eye candy?

Here ya go...

 

 

Have a week...

The Beeze.

When Sports Brings Us Those Treasured Moments

“You never know what you’re gonna get.”

 

We sit down to watch...

 

We go and attend...

 

It could be a typical game...

 

Or an atypical game...

 

We watch because we love it...

 

We go to be entertained...

 

Sometimes we don’t have a rooting interest...

 

Just sit back and watch...

 

Other times we are screaming our lungs out...

 

Or shaking our heads in frustration or disbelief...

 

 

Kellen Winslow...

 

Need I say more???

 

The man was a warrior...

 

Look it up...

 

I have never seen an individual effort like that day in Miami...

 

A treasured moment...

 

Those don’t go away...

 

And what is it about Miami???

 

 

Ohio State’s Braxton Miller in the Orange Bowl... 

 

Now let’s get this straight...

 

I have ALWAYS hated Ohio State...

 

That is your fault, Woody Hayes...

 

I NEVER root for the Buckeyes...

 

Even when I pick them to win as I did versus Clemson...

 

But something happened that night...

 

Braxton Miller made a fan out of me...

 

A Braxton Miller fan, mind you...

 

Not a Buckeye fan...

 

If you didn’t see the game, shame on you...

 

I know...

 

The BCS idiots lined up the Orange & Cotton Bowls...

 

Simultaneously...

 

What up with that...

 

I didn’t even get the full affect...

 

Both outstanding games nonetheless...

 

But Braxton Miller had the memorable performance of the bowl season...

 

He was stellar...

 

-----------

 

High school sports has its moments as well...

 

I’ve seen a few dandies over the years...

 

This year I have a little more time on my hands after school...

 

So I’ve decided to adopt our boys’ basketball team...

 

The Bell Gardens Lancers...

 

The players really appreciate it when teachers attend the games...

 

They even gave me a “Lancers Basketball” t-shirt...

 

I wear it proudly...

 

This year we had the pleasure of hosting a team from Australia...

 

They grow ‘em tall in Australia...

 

Our boys are always out-heighted...

 

But we have a distinct advantage in the heart department...

 

Jose Mata, our 5-4 point guard launched a whirling dervish of a lay up...

 

Over the outstretched arms of the 6-6 Australian...

 

At the buzzer to win the game...

 

We went nuts...

 

And if that wasn’t good enough...

 

Tuesday night was one of those treasured moments...

 

The 11-6 Lancers hosting 4-12 Alhambra...

 

Basketball is a game of heart...

 

And Alhambra had the heart to win...

 

We were far from our best...

 

The Moors had us by 15 with 6:30 left in the game...

 

Oh well...

 

We’ll get ‘em next time...

 

NOT!!!

 

The shots weren’t falling...

 

Freddy “En Fuego” Herrera, our super scorer, had an off night...

 

He couldn’t buy a bucket...

 

Alhambra’s star player had 35...

 

So Coach Cuevas had the boys turn up the heat defensively...

 

And the game made a U-turn...

 

The suffocating defense provided a jump start for the offense...

 

Guard Alan Villamar had the hot shooting hand...

 

Nailing one of his threes from 35 feet...

 

No kidding...

 

The Lancera actually procured the lead...

 

But Alhambra battled back...

 

And the game was tied at the end of regulation... 

 

Mata fouled out...

 

Starting forward Bryan Vidal was out with a sprained ankle...

 

And Alhambra got the early lead in overtime with a three...

 

With one minute left, the Moors had a five point lead...

 

Oh well...

 

But the Lancers scored four unanswered points and were down by one...

 

Thirteen seconds left...

 

And that Alhambra kid at the free throw line for two...

 

He had only missed one all night...

 

But the pressure was too much and he missed both...

 

Lancers with the rebound...

 

And Freddy redeems himself...

 

Going coast-to-coast and laying it in with seven seconds left...

 

Alhambra’s desparate attempt fails...

 

LANCERS WIN, 70-69!!!

 

The most exciting basketball game I have ever attended...

 

Way to go, Bell Gardens...

 

They say, “You can’t teach height.”

 

But you can have that height if you ask me..

 

I’d rather watch a team with heart anyways...

 

And the Lancers definitely have lots of heart...

You know, some weekends are work, work, work...Luckily Mrs. Beeze does the majority of the laundry!

The weekend started with me in the kitchen preparing Thanksgiving dinner...The kids watched the parade, my oldest nursing a serious cold that knocked her for a loop Tuesday afternoon, and kept her in bed for 2 days...

Family came and ate...Not too much family...Which meant lots of leftovers...Everyone left the house with extra food, and we still had plenty to enjoy the rest of the weekend...Plus the turkey stew I made with the dark meat, and the bones, and veggies...It cooked on very low heat for about 17 hours, and then we poured it over some fresh biscuits...Delicious!

Then came Saturday...I made it clear that all I was doing was watching football...First Ohio State at Michigan...It became very clear, early in this game, that neither team was here to play defense...It came right down to the wire...Michigan scores with less then 40 seconds left...42-41 OSU...Michigan coach Brady Hoke decides to try to ruin the Buckeyes' season right here and go for 2...They failed...Seemed like a bad play call, not giving his running QB an option to run it in himself if it's there...Me, I would have played it safe, kicked the 1, and go at it some more in OT...People say OSU would have rolled in OT...Well, the way the game went, Michigan wasn't having trouble moving the ball themselves...Oh well...The Buckeyes undefeated season marches on, looking ahead to Michigan State in the conference championship game...and looking over their shoulder to see if they get jumped by a 1 loss team in the rankings...

Then the "Iron Bowl" came on...Alabama at Auburn...So many of us wanted to see an upset...And with 1 second left, Alabama attempts a 57 yard field goal with a freshman kicker...Their starting kicker (who I won't name because he has already gotten enough hate mail and bad press) missed 3 field goal attempts earlier in the game...The kick was short, and Auburn CB Chris Davis returned it 109 yards for the winning, touchdown...

 

 

Fucking Auburn is becoming masters of the exciting big play, big finish...

After the game, Auburn AD Jay Jacobs was already pissing off Ohio State, and Ohio State fans by making his case to jump them in the standings saying it would be "a disservice to college football" if a one-loss SEC champion was left out of the national title game for Ohio State....Fucking balls down there in the South!

I'm not taking a side here, I'm just saying, maybe wait until your school plays Missouri in the SEC title game before you start trying to get into the National Championship game...

Then I watched my Fighting Irish take on Stanford...I didn't expect the Irish to win, but I was glad they hung in there...The fact is, they could have won this game...Like some other games this year, mistakes, and bad QB play got to them...I read a headline that summed up Saturday's game...

"Rees Shows Heart, Not Enough Arm."

I also had myself jumping to the UCLA/USC game...I was actually expecting it to be closer, but UCLA handled the Trojans 35-14...When that one lost it's luster I started checking on the Missouri/Texas A&M game...Missouri won 28-21, putting them into the SEC Championship game against Auburn, and putting that miserable look on Johnny Manziel's face...And I never get tired of that...

It has been a crazy football week...Thursday, I didn't watch the NFL, with the exception of the last 5 minutes of the Steelers/Ravens game...I did watch the Ole Miss/Miss State game...It was an old school backyard brawl, and Miss State pulled 17-10 OT win...From what I heard, it was better then the Lions/Packers game...

Sunday, I watched no football...Had to pick up the slack from doing nothing Saturday...So, we broke out the Christmas decorations and got all that crap started...It's the earliest we've ever done this crap...I don't like going this early, but the kids were excited...Plus the weekends are already getting booked up, plus both the girls birthday's are this month...Our oldest turns 12 Tuesday...Were the hell did the time go!?!

Oh, and I saw the Browns lost to Jacksonville...Jacksonville...that shit is why I quit being a Browns fan!

So, since I'm being Johnny Festive, I figure I end each week's post with a Christmas tune...But I'm gonna try to use some songs that aren't traditional...Here's Dead Sara's "Snow in Los Angeles"

 

 

 

Have a week...

The Beeze...

Q-o-t-D 11/30/13 (volume 2) Tags: NCAA Ohio State Michigan Brady Hoke
Should Brady Hoke have kicked the extra point and played for OT?

Or was the ballsy go for two and the win the right move?

Yeah Oregon...I have you as my number one team...Sure Alabama is still rolling along...But it's easy to roll along when one of the last six teams you've played has a winning record...

1. Oregon

2. Florida State

3. Alabama

4. Ohio State

5. Miami

6. Baylor

7. Fresno State

8. Stanford

9. Oklahoma

10. Clemson

That's my top ten right now, based on schedule strength, wins, and what I have seen...I watch a damn good amount of college football...Too much my wife would say!   Along with a number of the college football talk shows, so I can be aggravated by the talking heads...Pleas keep telling me how great Alabama is...1 of the last 6 teams they have played has a winning record...The media needs to stop giving them points for what they did the last two years..."This is this."  It's all about this year...Only this year...

Baylor hits the meat of their schedule now, so we'll see if their high flying, high powered offense can keep it up...Oregon is # 1 because their schedule...People are not respecting how good the PAC is this year...And Oregon's offense showed this week, even after a bad start, and good D, they can take over a game...UCLA is good, and they thought they had the Ducks setup for an upset...Then Oregon rattled off 28 unanswered points....

Sorry Ohio State fans...Yeah, you rolled Penn State...It was only Penn State...Every week two things happen in the Big Ten...Ohio State looks to be getting better...And everyone else looks weaker...The Buckeyes are being dragged down by their conference...And based on what I've seen, of my top three teams, in my opinion, Alabama is the only one Ohio State can take down...Florida State's thrashing of Clemson last week proved a lot of doubters, including me, that they are for real...

-Now onto The World Series...I'm writing the before Game four is played...I want to be able to watch the game, and go to bed...I had a long weekend as we went to visit family out of town...I'll get to that in a bit...I just want to address this idiot obstruction call which lead to the end of game 3...Maybe, the rule was being called, based on how it is written, but if you look at the still pictures of it, it seems like horse shit...

 

Seriously, who's obstructing who?  And how is a guy laying on the ground from diving for a ball, suppose to magically get out of the way for a guy who isn't even in the base path?

And why is the guy who called the Obstruction looking at where the ball went instead of looking at the supposed obstruction that is just now taking place?  Jim Joyce sucks balls...I'm not trying to sound like sour grapes, Johnny Boston defender, I'm just calling it like I see it...And I've seen Joyce fuck up a lot of calls, that impacted a number of games over the last few years....Dude sucks!

-So we went out of town...Went to Erie PA...Saw my wife's sister and her family from Boston...Love spending time with my brother-in-law, and their kids...Knocked down plenty beers...Took the kids to Splash Lagoon, an indoor water park...They had a blast, but holy fuck it was expensive...Finnegan stopped at everyone, laid down on his back, and let them rub his belly...Saw the in laws...Saw an old dude who clearly didn't give a fuck about how he parks...

 

It was a good time, but I hate staying in hotels...All the packing, loading, unloading, unpacking, repacking, reloading, unloading, haven't unpacked yet...And I never sleep well in hotels...Molly slept well, but she still woke up Grumpy Saturday morning...

Shit, that face cracks me up...

-Lastly, Sunday legendary singer, songwriter, poet, rock & roll, icon, and artist, Lou Reed died at age 71...Reed's music was something people either love or hate...His voice was never great, but greatly unique...I was shocked to learn he was 71...Because Lou Reed never seemed old...He was always cool, before everyone else knew what cool was...

Rest in Peace...

 

 

That's it for now...

Hope you have a "Perfect Day"
